Amiga Games That Weren't Site Updated

The aGTW site has finally been updated and redesigned (thanks to eLowar for this):

http://agtw.abime.net/

We have four new entries:

Harold the Hairy Hermit is a platform game where the titular Harold must rescue puppies.

Four mystery games are curious screenshots that were found on the One Step Beyond disks.

FLOWER is a colourful clear-'em-up and platformer.

Dragon is a shoot-'em-up with some beat-'em-up elements.

Really nice site redesign and some cool game discoveries. I guess there is a lot of more stuff you've collected the last two years, right?

Thank you Cody.
I still hope that FLOWER will be finished in future. It has a lot of potential and I like such games verhy much.

Possibly.

I was hoping that someone on the EAB might be able to fix Harold. It's an AMOS game.

I hope there will be added Pussies Galore from Team 17 one day. There must be some material about it, at least demo has been released. And also Wired Chaos by Skull army.

The new design is nice and updates are great, though.

The sourcecode is needed, then I think it would be easily possible to fix and re-compile.

Dragon have really good atmosphere and music, only animation of main hero is little odd (sorry, but it looks like fapping, not walking...) No death animation, only freeze for few seconds. No sound fx, music only (or I have to press something to hear sound fx?). Smooth scrolling of screen and objects. Press Q key to switch to beat'em-up mode (punches and kicks activated but you have also fireballs from normal mode).

In preview version of Harold the Hairy Hermit fonts are stolen/borrowed from Fire & Ice. Music is from Super Frog. In full version of that game Design Matters logo is rip-off of System 3 logo:
